Jeffrey Slayter is a speaker, coach and mentor specialising in creating transformational leaders. He’s known for his unique blend of business and spirituality.
I first came across Jeff when he was a guest on James McCracken’s podcast The Successful Adviser.
Jeffrey did a series of three podcasts with James, the first of which I refer to in this interview which is a particularly useful resources for people wanting to do paid speaking or selling from the stage.
I was really inspired by Jeff’s powerful message and practical, actionable tips, so I couldn’t wait to have him on the show. People often come to me asking about how to monetise their expertise through speaking, webinars, and information products, and I regularly refer them to Jeff’s interview as a “must listen”.
So in this podcast, I didn’t want to cover the same ground because James had done such a great job already – instead I thought I’d build on the foundation with Jeff and talk about what you do once you have the speaking opportunities?
- How do you deal with nervousness so you can be your best on stage?
- How do you connect with the audience?
- How do you create a space for transformation?
- How do you approach selling from the stage?
I also talked to Jeff about the value of mentoring and coaching, and particularly how Jeff goes about personally choosing mentors – how do you choose the right one, what if they “hard sell” you, and more.
